The 2021 HighSchoolOT Honors awards show went off without a hitch on Thursday night, July 22, on HighSchoolOT.com and the app. The program was also available on WRAL’s streaming channels. For the second year in a row, HighSchoolOT Honors took place virtually, but plans to move back to an in-person ceremony next year.
Awards were presented in 36 categories. It took a top-notch troop to put the presentation together.
“Nick Stevens did an excellent job hosting the awards with support from his team: Kyle Morton, J. Mike Blake, Zach Adams, Joel Bryant and Jacob Hancock,” said WRAL Digital Marketing Director Laura Worthington. “Also, special thanks to WRAL Sports’ Jared Fialko for the work he did on the package for our Stuart Scott Courage Award winner.”
She continued, “If you don’t watch the full awards show, watch Northwood rising junior Troy Ennis’ story. Troy was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer which has spread to different parts of his body. “His story will take you on an emotional rollercoaster,” said Nick Stevens. “Even though the odds may be stacked against him, Troy’s outlook on life is profound.”
The 2021 presentation took a team effort.
“HighSchoolOT Honors would not be possible without the support of our sponsors and many across CBC, including WRAL Digital Solutions, WRAL Sports, Local Production, Engineering, CBC Radio and the Durham Bulls,” said Worthington. “It’s amazing what we can do when we collaborate!”
